The second webinar in the AfriSam-SAIA’s series on Sustainable Design, which took place in August 2020, featured UrbanBetter founder Dr. Tolullah Oni in conversation with Dr. Philippa Tumubweinee, Head of School at Architecture Planning & Geomatics, University of Cape Town. The theme of the webinar, Breaking down the silos, focused on how trans-disciplinary urban design can help build better African livelihoods and cities.

Exploring topics such as the importance of awareness of health needs of users of a building, space or neighbourhood, and how data can inform the design and evaluation of sustainable innovations, the conversation interrogated the potential impact that multisectoral collaboration in urban planning could have on health in Africa’s cities.
